Railways earn Rs 15 crore from ticketless travellers

Agartala, Aug 10 (IANS) The Railways collected Rs 15 crore in fines in the first four months of the current fiscal from ticketless travellers in the country’s northeast.

The Northeast Frontier Railway (NFR) registered over two lakh cases of ticketless or improper travel in April-July, NFR’s Chief Public Relations Officer Pranav Jyoti Sharma said on Wednesday.

He said NFR’s earnings from ticket checking during this period had gone up by almost 43 per cent.

“The number of cases where penalty has been imposed has also increased by almost 36 per cent,” Sharma said, adding these efforts had led to more ticket sales.

The broad gauge railway network has been extended up to Agartala and some parts of Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram and Nagaland.
